    Padres Supplying Authentic Uniforms to Local Little Leagues

    Don't know if anyone saw this, but I think it's great:

    This is all part of a clever promotional initiative that makes so much sense, you have to wonder why nobody thought of it sooner. Here's the deal: All Little League chapters within a 10-mile radius of Petco Park were given the opportunity to choose from 20 past and present Padres jerseys and matching caps, all at no cost. Most of the leagues jumped at the chance. When the dust settled, the Padres had supplied 11,600 jerseys and caps to over 800 local T-ball, baseball and softball teams. Even better, the kids get to keep the gear when the season's over.
    There's a nice image linked from the article showing all the jersey and cap designs from which the teams can choose.

    Kudos to the Padres for such a unique idea -- this is the kind of thing that helps create and cement a new generation of fans.

    That is a fantastic idea. I wouldn't be surprised to see that picked up by most MLB clubs.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    But how will important businesses like Chico's Bail Bonds advertise now?
